A multi-color, focusable, lighting apparatus particularly adapted for illuminating performance stages and other visual displays comprises an array of light emitting diodes (LEDs) supported on a flexible base member which in turn is supported by a housing of the apparatus. A linear actuator is operable to move the base member between a generally planar position and a deflected position to cause the LED array to change the direction of the optical axes of a substantial number of LEDs in the array to focus light emitted from the LEDs, respectively. The LEDs are preferably provided in clusters of three LEDs, each cluster including a red, blue and green LED. A generally cylindrical shield may be connected to the housing to project light from the apparatus. The base member may comprise a moldable polymer material wherein the LED array and electrical conductors are encapsulated in the base member itself.
