Our forever FLOTUS took to Instagram to celebrate the news, writing, “So thrilled to receive a #GRAMMYs nomination! This past year has been such a meaningful, exhilarating ride. I’ve loved hearing your stories and continuing down the road of becoming together. Thank you for every ounce of love and support you’ve shared so generously. #IAmBecoming ”

 

 

Michelle’s audiobook will compete in the “Best Spoken Word Album” category 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 wins, she’ll be joining her hubby, Barack Obama, who won two Grammys in the same category for his audiobooks of “Dreams Of My Father” and “The Audacity Of Hope.”

He made a surprise visit during Michelle’s national “Becoming” book tour.

“I hadn’t met somebody who was that strong and that honest — somebody who I just felt was a rock,” he told the audience. “[She] was somebody who I knew, at that point, I would always be able to count on, and someone who, that if she was the mother of my children, I knew my children would turn out extraordinary.”

“Becoming” hit shelves in November of 2018 and has sold 10 million copies since its release. In an interview with Elle, Thomas Rabe, CEO of Bertelsmann, who owns Penguin Random House considered it the most “successful memoir ever.”
