Ahh, back in the days when Hilary Duff was a touring pop star, Kristin Cavallari was the queen of reality TV, and people were only just starting to learn Emma Stone‘s name, Teddy Geiger‘s song “For You I Will” was ruling the pop industry. These days, the singer is still keeping busy in the music industry, but with even bigger news. Per an announcement shared on Instagram, Teddy Geiger has officially started transitioning.
“I am transitioning,” the 29-year-old answered in an exchange posted on Instagram last night. “I started talking about it with a couple of my close friends and family about a month ago and it’s given me the courage to start the process… This is who I have been for a looooong time.”
In a post on Nov. 9, Teddy revealed she started hormone replacement therapy. “The journey continues. Thank you for all of your support and love. It feels good to have great friends. I am very grateful,” she wrote.
Wondering what else the singer-songwriter has been up to over the years? Teddy’s first single and album, Underage Thinking, was released back in 2006. After opening for Hilary on tour, it seemed like the star was going to be the next big thing. Teddy’s album made it all the way to #8 on the US Billboard 200 album chart, with a second single, “These Walls,” getting decent radio play, and a cover of Seventeen magazine featured the actor.
But just a few years later, Teddy was nowhere to be found — and the singer’s YouTube channel still just features those two singles and live performances. So what happened to Teddy Geiger? Well, it turns out the songwriter is still hard at work. Watch our video to see what Teddy’s been up to over the last decade.
The songwriter may have been royalty back in 2006. After all, the actor scored a couple of TV show episodes in a show called Love Monkey and even starred in the 2008 flick The Rocker alongside Rainn Wilson, Josh Gad, and then-girlfriend, Emma Stone. But it seems like Teddy is still doing pretty well these days — and writing music too, just for other artists. Which is kind of a shame, since we loved the singer’s voice. But at least we’ll always have those two albums and music videos. Speaking of, we’ll be right back — we need to rewatch “For You I Will” in solidarity.
