Our former First Lady Michelle Obama has earned a huge honor, a Grammy nod!

She is up for the Best Spoken Word Album award for the audiobook version of her memoir, which was released around this time last year, (November 2018). Best Spoken word is a category that focuses on audiobooks, storytelling, and poetry.

Obama shared her excitement on Twitter:

“So thrilled to receive a #GRAMMYs​ nomination! This past year has been such a meaningful, exhilarating ride. I’ve loved hearing your stories and continuing down the road of becoming together. Thank you for every ounce of love and support you’ve shared so generously.”

Also in the same category are Hairspray director John Waters as well as the Beastie Boys’ Michael Diamond and Adam Horovitz.

Congrats to Forever FLOTUS!
