Teddy Geiger -- the singer/songwriter best known for the 2006 ballad "For You I Will" -- just let the world know ... he's started the process of transitioning to a woman.
Geiger made the announcement by responding to a fan's question on social media about why he looked different lately. He says he started talking with close friends and family about a month ago and it gave him the courage to forge ahead.
