Sonyae Elise from "Platinum Hit" is one of the contestants in the Bravo reality songwriting competition series. She writes R&B and hip hop songs drawing her inspiration from Linda Jones. Elise would like to write songs for Mary J. Blige, Madonna, Beyonce, Alicia Keys and Lady Gaga. She is currently living in Los Angeles, California, but grew up in New Jersey.

Sonyae Elise ("Platinum Hit") grew up in a musical family and spent most of her childhood in recording studios with her mother. Elise first began writing songs when she was only seven years old and hasn't stopped since. Although she doesn't play any instruments, Elise thinks that not being tied down to a piano or guitar gives her a creative freedom that the other contestants will not be able to match. Combined with her self-proclaimed lyrical genius, there is little doubt in Elise's mind that this competition is hers for the taking.
