#TransformationTuesday: Cozi Zuehlsdorff
See the star’s inspiring journey from fan to “Freaky Friday”
Back in August, Cozi Zuehlsdorff made her DCOM debut in the movie-musical Freaky Friday, and last week she dropped her latest single, “Beat Drops.” But it’s been a long journey for the California native. Let’s take a look at Cozi’s incredible path to superstardom.
In 2011, Cozi scored her first major movie role, playing Hazel in “Dolphin Tale.” Look how little she was!
The flick was so popular, it got a sequel, and we got to hear Cozi sing for the first time. She wrote the song, too!
That same year, she released her debut EP, “Originals” and also wrote every single track on it! How impressive is that?
But that didn’t mean she put her acting on hold. You may remember her as Ocean on “Liv and Maddie.”
And as Jordan on “Mighty Med.”
However, Cozi never stopped making music. We’re obsessed with “Handpainted,” a song she wrote after having dinner with a friend who was struggling with her self-esteem:
“To be unhappy with ourselves is to shield our eyes from the glory pumping through our veins,” she explains. “We are created. We are loved. We are just as we should be.”
How beautiful is that? It’s amazing to see how far Cozi has come. Listen to “Beat Drops” and watch our exclusive interviews below!
