Eva Cassidy is a wonderful find and incredible talent. After she was diagnosed with terminal cancer, she set out and recorded as many beautiful songs as she could. Try to find Somewhere over the Rainbow, or Fields of Gold. She's probably been gone about ten years by now. .

Just discovering Eva. What a brilliant interpreter. Her cover of Stings In Fields of Gold is incredible as well.

Eva Cassidy is a gifted and blessed talent that left us too soon for the world to enjoy, but for me I not only enjoy her music but it moves my heart in ways that no music has ever.

Eva Cassidy could cover almost anything (she covered alot of songs) and add value every time. Her version is very similar to Cindi's original interpretati o n , but it is slower and more vocally intense, and uniquely Eva. For fans of this song, I can also recommend Phil Collins' cover.

This song has such great lyrics. If only more people wouldn't be afraid to show their own TRUE COLORS -- the world would be a much better place. 0;-)

According to Wikipedia: "True Colors" is a song written by professional songwriters Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly. It was both the title track and the first single released from Cyndi Lauper's second album. Billy Steinberg originally wrote True Colors about his own mother. Tom Kelly altered the first verse and the duo submitted the song to Cyndi Lauper.

Well it says this album is from '03 so I'm thinking it was Cyndi Lauper who recorded it first since i know she did it way back. If she wrote it or not would be another question.
