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.
