Bravotv.com: Over the course of the show, what were some of the challenges that surprised you, or that you thought were maybe the most difficult?
Well, everything was a surprise because we didn't know anything. It was all one big surprise for me. The amount of time we had, the fact that we had to work -- I didn't know what the hell I was getting myself into. Having to cowrite with people you don't know from a can of paint and then having to maintain a level of personal respect for each other just because you have to write with each other. When some people want to be rude, and some people get under your skin, and might be annoying, and you kind have to keep it cool because you have to work with these individuals. What surprised me the most was every challenge that they gave was one big f--king surprise. [Laughter] To tell you the truth.
Bravotv.com: What was your favorite challenge?
The love challenge and the rap challenge were probably my favorites. The love challenge is second nature to me. Being a woman and being emotional, just to be able to express myself is so easy. Music is my therapy, so that was a piece of cake. The rap challenge [I liked] because I was just excited to be able to show the contestants and the judges my other gift -- that I can rap. And I like that song, "Miss Make The Boys Cry."
Bravotv.com: What you would you say was your favorite song that you got a chance to work on during the show?
"Stranger to Love."
Congrats!!! I am soooo happy that you won! I have been pulling for your from the very beginning. You were definitely my fav and Scotty was a close second. Good luck to you and I look forward to hearing your music.
Sonyae's a STAR! I'm so happy she won. She's the only person I can really see becoming a platinum hit artist and songwriter. Like the female NeYo or DReam and the next Beyonce Lauryn Hill Mary J all mixed up in one. Cant wait for her album
Congratulations Sonyae - you deserved to win. I hope you become an artist, in addition to being a songwriter, you are beautiful and have an exceptional voice. The music industry could use an authentic talent like yourself.
Best of luck!
