VIDEO: Ann Wilson of Heart performs Lesley Gore classic on Jimmy Kimmel Live

Ann Wilson of Heart performed Lesley Gore’s 1963 hit, “You Don’t Own Me”, on ABC-TV’s Jimmy Kimmel Live on September 19.

Originally recorded by the Brooklyn singer when she was just 17, the tune reached No. 2 on the US Billboard Hot 100, where it stayed for three weeks behind The Beatles' “I Want To Hold Your Hand.”

Wilson’s version of the empowerment anthem – featuring Warren Haynes on guitar – appears on her newly-released covers album, “Immortal.”

The project sees the Seattle singer deliver a diverse set of tracks that pay homage to some of her favorite songs and artists, all of whom have passed away in recent years – including tracks by David Bowie, Tom Petty, Chris Cornell, Glenn Frey of The Eagles, and more.

Wilson recorded the set with original Heart producer Mike Flicker.
