OperaGram.com® History (est. 2006):
On a crisp October evening in Chicago, 2006, Rose Guccione was waiting for the arrival of two expectant parents at a baby shower. A friend approached the singer and said, “Do you remember the voicemail you left four years ago? Well I saved it! And I play it every year on my birthday while drinking a glass of champagne!” In this moment, OperaGram.com® was born!
OperaGram.com® gained notoriety in a Chicago Tribune “Live!” feature written by Robert K. Elder. The article prompted invitations by radio legend John “Records” Landecker on WLS Radio 890 AM and by NBC5 News Today with Rob Elgas, Zoraida Sambolin and Andy Avalos.
The United States Patent and Trademark Office granted Registered Trademark status to OperaGram.com® in October, 2009.
