(RestoreAmericanGlory.com) – Former First Lady Michelle Obama and Sen. Bernie Sanders from Vermont are going to be going head-to-head at the Grammys, as both have been elected for the best audiobook narration and storytelling recording category.

The nominations were released on Friday, and Obama was nominated for her memoir “The Light We Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times.” Similarly, Sanders received his nomination for his book “It’s OK to be Angry About Capitalism.” They find themselves in the same category as Rick Rubin, a veteran music producer, and actors William Shatner and Meryl Streep.

Obama, who had previously won a Grammy award for her 2020 book “Becoming” in the Spoken Word category, had also made a surprise appearance at the 2019 Grammy, where she stated that music had the power to allow people to “share ourselves.”

This is not Sanders’ first nomination for a Grammy either, as previously he had been nominated in 2018 in the spoken word category for “Our Revolution: A Future to Believe in,” with actor Mark Ruffalo. However, that year they lost to Carrie Fisher, whose memoir “The Princess Diarist” audiobook had won in the category.

The Grammy Awards are scheduled to take place on CBS on February 4.
