Former first lady Michelle Obama has been nominated for a Grammy in the Best Spoken Word Album category for her work on the audiobook of her best-selling memoir “Becoming.”

If she wins, this would be Obama’s first Grammy and her household’s third. Her husband, former President Barack Obama, won in 2006 and 2008 for the audiobook recordings of his books “Dreams of My Father” and “The Audacity of Hope,” respectively.

“Becoming,” released in November 2018, has sold more than 10 million copies.
