Michelle Obama could match Barack's Grammy nominations

 January 25, 2024

Michelle Obama, though not recognized as a musician, has earned a second Grammy nomination in the prestigious Best Audiobook, Narration & Storytelling Recording category.

The nomination is attributed to her narration of "The Light We Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times," an audiobook that swiftly gained success in sales.

The nomination

This nomination not only presents an opportunity for Michelle Obama to expand her collection of accolades but also positions her to join an exclusive cohort of individuals who have secured multiple wins in the competitive Best Audiobook category.

Currently, only four individuals have achieved this feat, with Michelle's husband, former President Barack Obama, and the iconic director Orson Welles sharing the third-most wins, each claiming the trophy twice.

The top positions are occupied by Maya Angelou and another former president, Jimmy Carter, both boasting an impressive three victories.

The potential win

A potential win for Michelle Obama would make her the first former First Lady to secure multiple victories in the Grammy's Best Audiobook category. While Hillary Clinton, another former First Lady, secured the trophy in 1997 during her White House tenure, she hasn't replicated this success.

The competition for the Best Audiobook Grammy is fierce, featuring prominent figures such as Meryl Streep, William Shatner, Rick Rubin, and fellow political figure Bernie Sanders.

The winners of the 2024 Grammys will be unveiled during a live telecast on CBS scheduled for February 4, 2024.

Matching her husband

Michelle Obama's prospective victory would not only add another Grammy to her name but would also establish her as one of the most accomplished artists in the Best Audiobook category, placing her on par with her husband's Grammy record.

The former First Lady's narration of her audiobook reflects her ongoing commitment to impactful storytelling. "The Light We Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times" resonated with audiences, contributing to its rapid success in the competitive audiobook market.

As Michelle Obama awaits the Grammy results, her potential win signifies not only personal recognition but also a significant cultural and artistic achievement.

The Grammys, known for honoring excellence in the music industry, would acknowledge the power of Michelle Obama's voice in the realm of audiobooks and storytelling.

The announcement of the Grammy winners on February 4, 2024, will unveil whether Michelle Obama will secure her place among the select few who have attained multiple victories in this esteemed category.
