"Wer Liebe lebt" ("Who Lives Love") was the German entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2001, performed in German and English by Michelle.

The song was performed nineteenth on the night, following Poland's Piasek with "2 Long" and preceding Estonia's Tanel Padar & Dave Benton with "Everybody". At the close of voting, it had received 66 points, placing 8th in a field of 23. Michelle wore a glittery, shocking pink gown for her Eurovision appearance.

The song is a ballad, with Michelle exhorting her listeners to "live love" in order to be immortal and truly live life. Michelle also recorded the song with lyrics entirely in English, entitled "To Live for Love".

It was succeeded as German representative at the 2002 Contest by Corinna May with "I Can't Live Without Music".
