Michelle Obama: She draws level with her husband at the Grammys

Michelle Obama catches up with her husband Barack: Like the ex-president, the former first lady now also has two Grammys.

Michelle Obama (60) has won her next Grammy. The former first lady of the USA won the award for best audio book recording on Sunday. She recorded her book “The Light We Carry” herself. This is Michelle Obama’s second Grammy. In 2020 she was successful in the same category for her autobiography “Becoming”.

“The Light We Carry” is a mixture of memoir and self-help book. In the work, which will be published at the end of 2022, she reports how she acts when she feels helpless.

The multiple Oscar winner was suggested for her reading of the children’s book “Big Three” by Brian Selznick (57). But even in her seventh attempt, Streep remained without a Grammy.

Also in the running was “Star Trek” legend William Shatner (92), who had read his autobiography “Boldly Go”. Music producer Rick Rubin (60) with “The Creative Act: A Way of Being” and Bernie Sanders (82) with “It’s Ok to Be Angry About Capitalism” were also nominated. As a candidate to succeed Barack Obama (62) as US President, Sanders was defeated by his opponent Hillary Clinton (76) in the Democratic primary campaign.
