Former US First Lady Michelle Obama is leading the race at the Best Spoken Word Album category at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards.
Her audio book, “Becoming,” is in the gunning for the win along with other remarkable nominees, which include “Beastie Boys Book” by various artists; “IV Catatonia: 20 Years as a Two-Time Cancer Survivor” by Eric Alexandrakis; “Mr. Know-It-All” by John Waters and “Sekou Andrews and the String Theory” by Sekou Andrews and the String Theory.
If Michelle wins, she will be another Obama who won the award. Her husband, former US President Barack Obama, won the award twice. In 2006, he won for his memoir “Dreams from My Father.” Two years after, he won yet again for his stance on politics in “The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream.”
He bested fellow former US Presidents Bill Clinton (“Giving”) and Jimmy Carter (“Sunday Mornings in Plains”).
The Grammys is set to unfold on 26 January (27 January in Phl) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
