“True Colors” is a song written by American songwriters Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly. It was both the title track and the first single released from American singer Cyndi Lauper’s second album. It was the only original song on the album that Lauper did not help to write. Released late in the summer of 1986, the song would become a major hit for Lauper, spending two weeks at number-one on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming her last single to occupy the top of the U.S. chart. It received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.
In 1998, the song was recorded by Phil Collins for his compilation album …Hits. The version was a smooth-jazz-influenced version compared to the original. R&B singer Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds produced and provided backing vocals. The track peaked at number 12 on the US Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100, number two on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart and number 26 on the UK Singles Chart.
