Former New Orleans Saints safety Steve Gleason will be featured in a Super Bowl commercial for Microsoft on Sunday (watch above).

The commercial is a 60-second ad featuring Gleason and others using Microsoft products.

Gleason, who suffers from ALS, eventually lost the use of his voice due to the disease. Gleason speaks through a synthetic voice on a computer connected to his wheelchair. He writes his words using his eyes.

Microsoft created a video(watch below) for its #empowering campaign showcasing how Gleason inspires others living with ALS and how he utilizes Microsoft Surface.
