Original Recording: Full of Colors
by Crystal and Doug Lowe
Featured twice in the film, Heart, Baby!, this original unaltered song was recorded inside prison in 1983, co-written and performed by two real-life inmates: Crystal and her friend Doug (a cisgender male).
Full of Colors was recorded 10 years before Crystal passed away. When you hear the lyrics of this song it is like a foreshadowing to the end of Heart, Baby!
We love Crystal so much and promised the real people behind this film that we would honor and respect her. Don’t let Crystal or any trans person like her ever be erased again.
We ask that you see and remember Crystal, just as her friends and the entire cast and crew of Heart, Baby! do. We love that there are times she sings out of key because it’s real – and listen closely, you can even hear her crying.
All of Crystal’s proceeds from this song will be donated to the National Center for Transgender Equality.
Because Heart, Baby! is also dedicated to my brother, Steve, who was a gay man and a devout Christian, a portion of the publishing profits will go to GALIP (God’s Agape Love (put) Into Practice) so that every human wanting to discover the love of God has can find a safe place to do so.
Please gift or share this song with someone you love.
