Michelle Obama has secured her second Grammy Award, mirroring the accolades of her husband, Barack Obama.

The former first lady clinched the coveted title for the Best Audiobook, Narration, and Storytelling category with “The Light We Carry: Overcoming In Uncertain Times.”

This victory adds to her previous Grammy triumph for the audiobook version of her memoir, “Becoming.”

The announcement unfolded during the pre-show of the 2024 Grammys, where a constellation of stars eagerly awaited the results.

Michelle Obama emerged victorious in a field that included notable figures such as Meryl Streep, Senator Bernie Sanders, William Shatner, and Rick Rubin.

Notably absent from the ceremony, Michelle Obama’s narrated audiobook proved its mettle, outshining the competition.

This achievement puts the Obamas in tandem in the realm of Grammy recognition, as Barack Obama has previously secured the coveted award for Best Spoken Word Album with “Dreams from My Father” and “The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream.”

The power couple continues to leave an indelible mark not only in politics but also in the world of literature and storytelling.

As the Grammys unfold under the hosting prowess of Trevor Noah, the musical extravaganza promises stellar performances by SZA, Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, Olivia Rodrigo, and an array of music icons.

Michelle Obama’s triumph further solidifies her legacy as a multifaceted influencer, adding another resplendent chapter to her illustrious journey.
