Michelle Obama was nominated in the category of Best Spoken Word Album for the audio recording of her best award winning memoir. She won the award amidst director John Waters and the Beastie Boys’ icons Adam Horovitz and Michael Diamond.
Although she was not available to receive the award herself, Esperanza Spalding who was the Best Jazz Vocal Album winner accepted the award on her behalf.
Michelle Obama according to history will be the second first lady to grab a Grammy award. The first happened to be Hillary Clinton in 1997.
Kudos to Michelle Obama.
