It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of legendary songwriter, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, and Dr. Jenn’s mom, Cynthia Weil. Her contributions to the music industry are immeasurable, and her talent and dedication will be deeply missed. Weil was a prolific writer who penned some of the most iconic songs in American music history. From classics like “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin'” to 1969’s “Make Your Own Kind of Music,” which is featured prominently in the trailer for the upcoming Barbie movie, her work spanned the decades, touched countless lives, and left an indelible mark on the world.

Beyond her impressive catalog, Weil was known for her kindness and generosity, inspiring countless aspiring songwriters over the years. Dr. Jenn says, “My mother, Cynthia Weil, was the greatest mother, grandmother and wife our family could ever ask for. She was my best friend, confidant, and my partner in crime and an idol and trailblazer for women in music.”
Our thoughts go out to Dr. Jenn and her family during this difficult time as they mourn the passing of a truly remarkable woman. You can read more about Cynthia’s incredible life here.
