"Thanks for everything …"
With these words, Matthias Schweighöfer (37) tells his composer Sam Wieland. The talented musician in Berlin died just 28 years old.
Schweighöfer recorded with Wieland the song "Auf uns double" for his first musical album "Laugh, cry, dance". In Berlin, Tempodrom Schweighöfer invited him to the stage when he gave his first concert there.
Wieland also wrote songs for Lena Meyer-Landrut, Andrea Berg and Howard Carpendale in recent years.
The greatest passion: his band. Together with his brother Chelo Wieland he formed the rap group SAM.
After a tour with Cro and two albums they could put in the charts, Wieland and his brother, originally from Ochsenhausen, signed this summer their first record label with a major label, Sony Music.
And now, the unexpected death that was announced on Friday afternoon on social media channels. Details of the circumstances of death are unknown.
