Kusumi was the only member chosen in the Morning Musume Audition 2005. She debuted on the single Iroppoi Jirettai, was first featured on the Rainbow 7 album, and her first Morning Musume concert was Morning Musume Concert Tour 2005 Natsu Aki "Baribari Kyoushitsu ~Koharuchan Irasshai!~".

She joined the Hello! Project kickbase team Metro Rabbits H.P. and she is best known as the voice actor for Tsukishima Kirari, the main character of on-going anime Kirarin Revolution, that started April 7, 2006. She made her solo debut with her single Koi Kana, the opening theme of Kirarin Revolution. Her singles under the name "Tsukishima Kirari starring Kusumi Koharu (Morning Musume)" are used as the openings and endings for the anime.


* She is the second Morning Musume member to come from Niigata, following Ogawa Makoto.
* The word "miracle" is used in relation to Kusumi a lot (whether as a nickname or as a catchphrase) because the 7th generation auditions were to find the "ace" for Morning Musume, whom Tsunku dubbed would be a "miracle."
* During her audition, she stated that she prefers the "cool" images over "cute," and stated Yoshizawa Hitomi and Fujimoto Miki as the members she admires the most. She has also stated that Fujimoto Miki is her favorite celebrity on both Hello! Morning and Ongaku Senshi MUSIC FIGHTER.
* Her mentor figure within Morning Musume is Michishige Sayumi.
* She is the youngest artist to debut solo within Hello! Project.
* She was the best selling Hello! Project soloist in 2006 & 2007.
* Claims to be anxious around the older generation members, particularly Nakazawa Yuko and Yaguchi Mari. However, since being in Morning Musume Tanjou 10nen Kinentai, she's claimed to have calmed her anxiety around Iida Kaori and Abe Natsumi.
* She gets startled when someone speaks in Kansai dialect.
* She was the first artist to achieve the 2.0 ratio in Hello!Project in years. (The 2.0 ratio is First Week sales versus Total sales. In other words, she was able to double her first week sales.)
