Leslie Gore May 2, 1946 – February 16, 2015

Singer-songwriter Lesley Gore, who topped the charts in 1963 at age 16 with her epic song of teenage angst, 'It's My Party,' and followed it up with the hits 'Judy's Turn to Cry,' and the feminist anthem 'You Don't Own Me,' died Monday. She was 68.
Gore died of lung cancer at New York University Langone Medical Center in Manhattan, according to her partner of 33 years, Lois Sasson.
'She was a wonderful human being — caring, giving, a great feminist, great woman, great human being, great humanitarian,' Sasson, a jewelry designer, told The Associated Press.
Brooklyn-born and New Jersey-raised, Gore was discovered by Quincy Jones as a teenager and signed to Mercury Records. She graduated from Sarah Lawrence College with a degree in English/American literature.
Gore's other hits include 'She's A Fool,' ''Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows,' ''That's the Way Boys Are' and 'Maybe I Know.' She co-wrote with her brother, Michael, the Academy Award-nominated 'Out Here On My Own' from the film 'Fame.'
