Sonyae Elise is an American singer-songwriter based in Los Angeles who won the inaugural and only series of Platinum Hit,[1] a Bravo American television channel show about new songwriters.

Her prizes included $100,000 as a cash prize, an RCA/Jive Records contract and a publishing deal with The Writing Camp. According to her interview with Billboard Magazine, she does not read music nor can she play any instruments. "I have a lot of old stuff at my mother's house, notebooks and things with scripts and lyrics written in them. I did a lot of theater – 'Grease,' 'The Lion King' – and I wanted to write music for plays. Lyrics came naturally to me. I listened to a lot of pop music and KRS-One and MC Lyte and I saw (writing) as a way to express my thoughts."[2] For her winning song, she wrote "My Religion" which was released as a single after her victory.[3]
