The holiday was created in 1999 by combined effort of American and European otolaryngologists and speech and language pathologists. The idea actually belongs to the American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery and the Portuguese MD Mario André.
The holiday aims to demonstrate the importance of voice in everyday life as the first and the foremost means of communication. Voice is very important for many art forms, like music and theater to name a few.
