Michael Franti gives Jay Leno a NW SolarFest solar mini car


For his birthday SSP co-founder, Larry Owens daughter Ashley took him to hear Michael Franti when he played in Seattle in 2011. After he performed, he comes out to meet every person who wants to talk with him. Larry gave him one of the NW SolarFest solar cars and invited him to attend or perform at NW SolarFest. He REALLY liked the car but said he was booked elsewhere that weekend. When Ashley was watching the video (simply as a fan of Michael), she saw the video clip where Franti shares the car with Jay Leno before the taping of the March 22, 2011 Tonight Show.
