Élan Luz Rivera (born June 1982) was a member of the musical group Johto. She stopped working for the 4Kids dub when the group disbanded, and is currently one of the singers of The D.E.Y.


Born and raised in New York City, Élan began working as an actress at a young age; she appeared in the movie, Life with Mikey, and also made a guest appearance on the television series, Ghostwriters. She attended LaGuardia High School for Music and Arts, and made her first appearance on Broadway at age 16 as "Cookie" in the musical play The Capeman from January 29 to March 28, 1998 at the Marquis Theatre in New York. In June 2000, she was handpicked alongside five others by John Loeffler who, at the time, was looking for new musicians for the 4kids dub of the anime. In 2007, she, Divine, and Yeyo formed The D.E.Y., releasing their first album by June 2008.

In 2022, Rivera reunited with four of her former Johto (musical group) singers and comedy actor Cody Burns to perform the "Pokémon Johto" theme song for the Every Pokémon Ever charity benefit.
