A string of best selling albums for RCA Records and frequent appearances on every major TV show quickly made them a household name. For three years they were the musical representatives for Coca-Cola, and their rendition of the jingle "Things Go Better with Coke" became a national hit. In addition there were endless tours with standing room only crowds.

I was horrified when I received an e-mail from Smith's daughter Olivia the day we printed the error. Olivia, now a college student who throughout her years attending La Cañada High was a Valley Sun intern, contained herself nicely when she pointed out our gaffe.
