Michelle Obama gets her first Grammy Award nomination for her book ‘Becoming’

Former US first lady and cultural icon Michelle Obama could soon win a Grammy for her bestselling memoir ‘Becoming’.

The former first lady on Wednesday (20.11.19) was nominated for the best-spoken word album award for her work on the audiobook of her memoir ‘Becoming.’

She will compete against John Waters (‘Mr. Know-It-All’), Eric Alexandrakis (‘I.V. Catatonia: 20 Years As A Two-Time Cancer Survivor’), Sekou Andrews & The String Theory, and Michael Diamond and Adam Horovitz of the Beastie Boys (‘Beastie Boys Book’) for the award.

If she won, this would be Mrs. Obama’s first Grammy but her household’s third. Former President Barack Obama has two Grammys in the same category. He won in 2006 and 2008 for the audiobook recordings of his books ‘Dreams of My Father’ and ‘The Audacity of Hope.’

As reported by The Sauce, ‘Becoming’ was released in November 2018 and, as of March, sold more than 10 million copies.

The memoir chronicles her childhood in Chicago, the early years of her marriage to Barack Obama and her time as America’s first African-American first lady. The 426-paged book tells her full story as she has lived it, in her own words and on her own terms.
