Why this band is teaching financial literacy to students across America

Students fill an auditorium in a western Pennsylvania high school. It's 8 a.m., and the juniors and seniors are pretty quiet. They're looking at their phones and talking to their friends when a rock band comes on stage.

The band GOODING travels to schools teaching young people how to manage their finances. They're trying to prepare students for a future where cash is much less common.

"I'm a musician who made these mistakes, and I thought hopefully we can make a little bit of a difference." - Gooding
