In addition to being the former First Lady of the United States and bestselling author, Michelle Obama officially adds “Grammy winner” to her resume.

Michelle Obama received the award for best spoken word album at the 2020 Grammys, beating out John Waters and two of the Beastie Boys for the audiobook version of her 2018 memoir Becoming.

However, her win on Sunday at the Staples Centre gives the Obama household its third Grammy.

Former President, Barack Obama has already obtained two Grammys in the same category for his books Dreams From My Father and The Audacity of Hope, respectively.

Released in late 2018, “Becoming” saw the former first lady slam President Donald Trump for questioning her husband’s citizenship and promoting the notion that he was born abroad.

“The whole [birther] thing was crazy and mean-spirited, of course, its underlying bigotry and xenophobia hardly concealed,” Obama wrote.

America’s first black first lady also dug into her personal life in her book, expounding on issues including a miscarriage, using in-vitro fertilization to conceive her daughters and marriage counseling.
