Human Nature: Aussies do Motown

When you think of Motown, you might not imagine four white guys from Australia belting out Smokey Robinson hits.  But those guys - the a capella group, Human Nature - became a hit in Australia, before crossing the ocean.  Dancing and singing to "Earth Angel" and "I'll Be There," the 22-year group performs at the Imperial Palace.  The guys join us to talk about being "not cool" singing in high school, how Smokey Robinson discovered them, and how they keep Motown alive.
