World Voice Day is Reason to Sing
Cairns, QLD, Australia – (News4us.com) April 11, 2012
Monday, 16 April is World Voice Day. According to Katerini Manolatos and Gail Rogers of Cairns’ Vocal Boot Camp program, this is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the power of voice; how to use it with effect with practice and care.
It is also a great time to book into one of the up and coming Vocal Boot Camp workshops on Sunday 29 April and Sunday, 20 May.
“We have all heard how devastating a loss of voice has been for pop singer Adele,” said Ms Manolatos.
In a message she wrote to fans explaining her latest setback, a vocal hemorrhage, Adele said, “Singing is literally my life … I have great confidence in believing you know how much this upsets me, how seriously I take it. Wanting to do something so bad and not being able to is the most frustrating thing as I’m sure you know.”
Adele successfully underwent vocal cord microsurgery by Dr. Steven Zeitels to stop recurrent vocal cord hemorrhage (bleeding) from a benign polyp.
Speech Language Pathologist Gail Rogers commented, “Adele’s injury was most likely caused by her vocal misuse and incorrect technique.
“Interestingly, it is not just singers who suffer these problems. So do teachers who within the first five years of their career, are more likely to experience voice problems – especially female teachers who are at a higher risk than male teachers. Irrespective of vocation, we are all at risk.”
“Your daily life revolves around the powerful function of your voice. In many instances we are called upon to extend our vocal use within various business, professional development and social situations in the form of conversation, oral presentation, performance and maybe even vocal pursuits outside the office,” said Ms Rogers.
Gail Rogers and Katerini Manolatos firmly believe that the voice holds the key to communication success.
As such, they joined forces in September 2008 to create their innovative Vocal Boot Camp program that has been promoting the proper use of voice ever since.
