(WASHINGTON) — It’s no wonder that Kelly Clarkson was invited to perform at President Obama’s inauguration: his wife is quite a fan.
First lady Michelle Obama tells People magazine that out of all the songs nominated for Grammys this year, her favorite is Kelly’s #1 hit, “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You).” She tells the magazine, “It’s an empowering song with a positive message.”
Soon, Mrs. Obama may join Kelly in the annals of Grammy history: she’s nominated for her own trophy this year, in the Best Spoken Word Album category, for her gardening book American Grown. The president, however, already has two Grammys, both in that same category, for his own books.
