‘It’s My Party’ and ‘She’s a Fool’ performed by Lesley Gore on Sullivan.

She was SEVENTEEN in this performance. Absolutely incredible.

17-year-old Lesley Gore made her debut on ‘The Ed Sullivan Show’ in 1963. Dressed in a full-length gown with her hair perfectly done, Lesley sang a medley of her two big hits, ‘It’s My Party, and I’ll Cry if I Want to’ and ‘She’s a Fool.’ Lesley was still in high school and released more hit records, including ‘You Don’t Own Me,’ which became a feminist anthem in the 60s. A truly timeless talent that can be appreciated again and again.
