Raël (born Claude Maurice Marcel Vorilhon on 30 September 1946), is the founder and current leader of the UFO religion known as Raëlism.
Vorilhon began singing at a young age and soon became a sports-car journalist and test driver for his own car-racing magazine, Autopop. Following what he said was an extraterrestrial encounter in December 1973, he formed the Raëlian Movement and changed his name to Raël (allegedly meaning "messenger of the elohim"). He later published several books, which detail his claims of an encounter with a being called Yahweh in 1973. He traveled the world to promote his books for over 30 years.
