Keep getting "it looks like task 1 is no longer passing".

Anyone know what I am doing wrong? Everytime I get to the second step it just says that task 1 is no longer passing. I have also tried selecting just the input tag but that doesnt seem it work. Thanks,

js/app.js
let button = document.getElementById("sayPhrase");                                  
let input = document.getElementbyId("phraseText");

button.addEventListener('click', () => {
  alert(input.value);
});
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Phrase Sayer</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <p><input type="text" id="phraseText"></p>
    <p><button id="sayPhrase">Say Phrase</button></p>
    <script src="js/app.js"></script>
  </body>
</html>

The error is misleading. Double check your syntax for declaring the input variable. It looks like the syntax is off compared to the same command for declaring button.
