'IT'S MY PARTY' SINGER LESLEY GORE DIES IN NEW YORK

Lesley Gore



Famed New York City Singer-songwriter Lesley Gore, who was at the top of the charts in 1963 at age only 16 with her epic song  "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 today. 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. New York City has lost another legend.
