Rachel Rhodes (ローズ・レイチェル, Reicheru Rozu) or 安田レイ (Yasuda Rei), born on April 15, 1993 in North Carolina, United States, is a Japanese-American model and singer associated with the virtual band Genki Rockets.
Genki Rockets, a virtual band produced by Tetsuya Mizuguchi from Q Entertainment and fellow musician Kenji Tamai from AgehasSprings, was once believed to consist mostly of unknown musical artists. The band's vocalist, Lumi, is a fictional 18-year old woman born on September 11, 2019, and is the first human being born in outer space. She has never been to planet Earth. Initially, it was believed that Lumi's voice was synthesized from at least two different female vocalists.
Upon the release of Genki Rocket's debut album, Genki Rockets I - Heavenly Star (released on July 2, 2008), it was revealed through the credits listed in the album's leaflet that Lumi's voice is dually provided by Rachel Rhodes and Japanese singer Nami Miyahara. Rhodes also acts in the role of Lumi visually, in Genki Rockets' music videos, album art, and in media accompanying the band's live performances.
Her debut single is Best of my Love (released on July 3, 2013) produced by Kenji Tamai. It is an ending theme to Space Battleship Yamato 2199.
