            Lesley Gore


            Lesley Gore hit the music scene at 17 years of age in 1963 with the teen anthem "It's My Party". Born in Brooklyn (Kings County), New York, USA, she was discovered at a party by legendary producer Quincy Jones, who signed her to Mercury Records and produced "It's My Party". More hits followed: "Judy's Turn to Cry", "She's a Fool", "That's the Way Boys Are", and the surprisingly (for the times) feminist-oriented "You Don't Own Me". She branched out from recording and began appearing on stage in summer stock, and putting in appearances in movies and television shows (including one on the TV series "Batman" (1966)--which just happened to be produced by her uncle Howie Horwitz). In 1983, she was nominated for an Academy Award with her brother Michael Gore, for Best Song for the film Fame (1980). She still tours and records, in addition to appearing in summer stock productions.
