Obama And Grammys
Out of his four writings, audiobooks of two of his writings were nominated for Grammys. In 2006 he won Grammy for his writing “Dreams From My Father” in the category of BEST SPOKEN WORD ALBUM, which includes poetry, audiobooks and storytelling. Later in 2008, he won for “The Audacity Of Hope: Thoughts On Reclaiming The American Dream” for the same. He was nominated for both of these awards when he was US Senator, not when he was president. He was elected as the president of the USA later in 2009 and continued his presidentship till 2017.
