or download order form

Written by Libby in 1988 and included on her new compilation CD "How Could Anyone" in 2005 (see below), as well as on her "If You See a Dream" recording in 1990, the song "How Could Anyone" has traveled around the globe, been translated into many different languages, reprinted in numerous books (including Hometown by Pulitzer Prize winner Tracy Kidder), sung at the U.N. Conference in Beijing by thousands of NGO representatives, and used in every conceivable format and venue, from videos, films, and slide shows to hospitals, prisons, kindergartens, marches, peace gatherings, weddings, funerals and shelters. Several years ago, Princess Diana was even spotted wearing a "How Could Anyone" tshirt to work out in the gym!

On August 19, 2005 , CNN's global news program Anderson Cooper 360 did a special segment on Libby and the worldwide healing impact of the song. It included a wide range of individuals and groups singing Libby's songs, including AIDS orphans in Zambia, cancer survivors in North Carolina, a Quaker kindergarten class in Brooklyn, New York, disabled teens at a camp in Mt. Hood, Oregon, women and girls redefining beauty in Maine, and more. In September 2005, the Associated Press issued a story about How Could Anyone that went worldwide.

Turtle Island Records receives hundreds and hundreds of letters from listeners describing healing uses of the song worldwide.. We welcome your letters and will periodically publish various stories we receive on the website. Send them to: Turtle Island Records P.O.

HOW COULD ANYONE

HOW COULD ANYONE EVER TELL YOU
YOU WERE ANYTHING LESS THAN BEAUTIFUL?

HOW COULD ANYONE FAIL TO NOTICE
THAT YOUR LOVING IS A MIRACLE?

HOW DEEPLY YOU’RE CONNECTED TO MY SOUL.
