  • Face of the Band - China Forbes. In August of 2011 she had to retire and undergo surgery for her vocal chords, but as of December 31st, 2011, She's Back.

  • Mondegreen - in "Amado Mio," a cover of another song, China Forbes sings "I want you ever, I love my darling, wanting to hold you and hold you tight" - and only later did the band realize that the words are "My one endeavor, my love, my darling, will be to hold you..."
