Sascha Herchenbach has created a song as a tribute to stricken Formula One, or F1, racing legend Michael Schumacher. The 35-year-old Wismar native musician was reportedly inspired to write a song that will also be used to raise money for people with disability.

According to a report by Swiss news outlet Bluewin, the song titled "Born to Fight" will be released on Jan. 3, 2015, which is the day that Michael will celebrate his 46th birthday. It will be launched at Michael's Old-Kerpen pub in Michael's hometown.

The report said that the launch will be attended by a few guests. However, it has not been revealed whether or not Michael's devoted wife Corinna or other members of his family will be there.

"I wrote the song within three days, including composition and recording, as a sign of hope to other physically and mentally disabled," Herchenbach said. Two gospel choirs from Hamburg, Fresh Annointing and CCOM Youth, initially sang the tune in a video that was shot and sent to the University of Grenoble Hospital, where Michael had spend almost half a year in a medically-induced coma.

The report further said that Herchenbach's song had touched the family of the seven-time F1 champion. Corinna thanked Herchenbach via email and said that it was a very nice gift especially during these trying times in their lives.

In his profile on his official Facebook account, it is revealed that Herchenbach has a passion for being involved in social and charitable activities. It said that Herchenbach is often seen at peace celebrations, commemorations, and benefit concerts for people in vegetative state, children in orphanages, or people with mental disabilities. He was born on 1979 in Wismar and currently stays in Hamburg. His musical influences are Michael Jackson and Herbert Gronemeyer. One of his career highlights as a musician was when he brought a wide variety of musicians from different countries such as Russia, Chile, Portugal, Ukraine, Ghana, Italy, South Africa, and Germany in a concert.

Meanwhile, the tragic skiing accident that Michael has suffered while vacationing in the French Alps will mark its first year anniversary on Dec. 19. Michael is currently undergoing rehabilitation at his home in Lake Geneva, Switzerland.
