Sports and music both have the power to bring people together in real and meaningful ways.
To understand that better, watch this story from ESPN's "E:60" exploring the connection between ex-New Orleans Saints player Steve Gleason, who is fighting ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig's disease), and the musicians of Pearl Jam, whose music Gleason has loved since he was a teenager.
You'll see Gleason, who is recording a video journal for his young son, share a powerful moment with Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder as they discuss leadership and fatherhood.
