Baraka's voice can be heard in over 80 major motion pictures, TV shows, and albums including La La Land, Star Trek Into Darkness, Jurassic World, Finding Dory, Men in Black III, The Voice, and The Tonight Show. Top film composers such as Danny Elfman, Hans Zimmer, and Michael Giacchino have enlisted her talents singing everything from belted gospel, to ethereal soprano, to child-like character voices.

In 2015, Baraka shared the stage with Danny Elfman in The Nightmare Before Christmas LIVE performing as lead female character, Sally, in Tokyo, Japan and again as a character soloist for two sold-out performances at the Hollywood Bowl. She has since performed the role of Alana in The Little Mermaid LIVE at the Hollywood Bowl alongside a star-studded cast including Jodi Benson, Sara Bareilles, Rebel Wilson, and Titus Burgess; additionally, she reprised her roles in The Nightmare Before Christmas LIVE for 3 sold-out performances at the Bowl in 2016 and premiered La La Land LIVE as a featured singer at the Bowl in 2017.
