Former US President Obama nominated for Grammy Awards for his audiobook A Promised Land
Former US President and two-time Grammy Award winner Barack Obama has been nominated for the third time for his audiobook A promised land. The audiobook was featured in the “Best Spoken Word Album” category, HuffPost reported. Others nominated in the same category include Dave Chappelle, LeVar Burton and Don Cheadle.
Obama had already received the Grammy in 2006 for Dreams of my father in the category of spoken words. He won the prestigious award again in 2008 for The Boldness of Hope: Reflections on Reclaiming the American Dream.
A promised land was first published in November 2020 and reflects the time when Obama was in power. It happens to be the first in a planned two-part series and relates to the early years of Obama’s presidency up to when the feared terrorist Osama bin Laden was hunted down in 2011.
With a keen interest in technology, I make it a point to keep up to date with the latest developments in the world of technology and gadgets. This includes smartphones or tablets, but even extends to AI and self-driving automobiles, the latter being my latest fad. In addition to writing, I like watching videos, reading, listening to music or experimenting with different recipes. Cinema is another aspect that interests me a lot and maybe I will make a film in the future.
