Why do I need one, is the next question? Richard Pilbrow says in his book "Stage Lighting Design, The Art, The Craft, The Life", lighting has "four controllable properties: intensity, color, distribution, and movement". Color is second on the list for a very good reason: it is necessary to convey mood and time and place. Additionally, lighting angle (part of Pilbrow's distribution) is critical to making people and objects look natural and real. A fixture with a color changer keeps the angle the same, while allowing variance in the color.
