Michelle Obama wins Grammy Award for ‘Becoming’ audio book
Michelle Obama joined the ranks of Lizzo, Billie Eilish, Lil Nas X and Beyonce on Sunday as the 62nd annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles came to close with several Hollywood stars winning.
The 56-year-old former first lady of the United States of America is now a Grammy winner after snagging the award on music’s biggest night for Best Spoken Word Album, for the audio book of her memoir Becoming.
Her win on Sunday gives the Obama household its third Grammy title. The former president Barack Obama, 58, has already snagged two Grammys in the same category for his books.
She faced an eccentric group of rivals that included: Michael Diamond and Adam Horovitz of the Beastie Boys for Beastie Boys Book; John Waters, the director-performer known for his transgressive cult films, for Mr. Know-It-All; Eric Alexandrakis for I.V. Catatonia: 20 Years As A Two-Time Cancer Survivor and Sekou Andrews for Sekou Andrews & The String Theory.
Released in late 2018, Becoming saw the former first lady slam President Donald Trump, 73, for questioning her husband’s citizenship and promoting the notion that he was born abroad. Check out All the winners at the 2020 Grammy Awards here.
