Michelle Obama has won Best Spoken Word Album for her audiobook Becoming.
Obama beat out fellow nominees including Michael Diamond, Adam Horovitz, John Water and Sekou Andrews to take the prize at the 62nd Grammy Awards held last night at the Steples Center in Los Angeles.
The printed version of Becoming book sold 1.4 million copies in its first week. After 15 days, the book became the best-selling book in the US for the year 2018. By March 26, 2019 it had sold over 10 million copies.
Michelle is also the second Grammy winner in the Obama family — husband and former President Barack Obama has two Grammy Awards in the spoken word album category for his memoirs Dreams from My Father and The Audacity of Hope, won in 2006 and 2008.
