Sometimes when that error message pops up, it's actually for a different reason, I'm not quite sure why. BUT, I do see the issue. It isn't proper syntax to have an actual string in the parameter of the argument, the argument in the parameter is just a place holder for whatever string is passed to it later. Get rid of the parentheses and you'll be good to go :)
