Lesley Gore - Voice Your Choice

Lesley Gore was born in Manhattan, the heart of New York City, in 1946. Lesley came from a musical family and her brother Michael Gore became a successful and sought after music arranger and writer. His scoring credits include Fame, Terms Of Endearment, Pretty In Pink, and many other Lesley was discovered by the famous record producer Quincy Jones while she was singing in a hotel in Manhattan. She charted 19 records, including 4 in the Top Ten.

She appeared in several music-themed movies including the legendary T.A.M.I. Show, a live concert hosted by Jan & Dean and shot at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, with so many other stars of the day including Chuck Berry, Gerry & The Pacemakers, Marvin Gaye, The Supremes, The Miracles, The Rolling Stones, James Brown and others.

Lesley continues to record and perform today, and I invite you to visit her website, www.lesleygore.com
