HTML HTML Video and Audio Media Basics The Audio Element

How to add an src attribute to <audio> element.

I'm not sure what's wrong with my src attribute. It keeps saying I did not add it, but I did it like this in my workspace and it says it's correct.

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <title>HTML Video and Audio</title>

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="normalize.css">
    <link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Nunito:400,300' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="main.css">
  </head>
  <body>

    <h1>HTML Video and Audio</h1>

    <div class="wrapper">

      <!-- Add your code below this line -->
        <audio controls>
           <source src="http://treehouse-code-samples.s3.amazonaws.com/html-video-and-audio/bridge-audio.mp3" type="audio/mp3">  
        </audio>

    </div>

  </body>
</html>
