Jimmy Carter Wins Second Grammy Award For Spoken Word Album

Former Democratic President Jimmy Carter won his second Grammy Award for a spoken word album Sunday night.

The biographical album, titled, “Faith – A Journey For All,” landed Jimmy Carter a 2019 Grammy, after he won in 2016 for another spoken album, “A Full Life: Reflections at 90.”

As Varietyreports, former presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama have also won Grammys for spoken word albums.

Since leaving office in 1981, Carter has busied himself with philanthropic work with Habitat For Humanity and other groups. The former president also wrote a book in 2006 titled Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid, which was seen by many as critical of Israeli actions toward Palestinians.
Since President Donald Trump took office, the 94-year-old has become quite the critic.

“If I were foolish enough to feel I could be president again and I got to be president, I think the first thing I would do would be to change all of the policies that President Trump has initiated since he has been in office,” he said in 2018.

Carter also claimed in 2018 that Jesus Christ would be in favor of same-sex marriage.

“I believe that Jesus would approve of gay marriage,” he said in an interview.

“I think Jesus would encourage any love affair if it was honest and sincere and was not damaging to anyone else and I don’t see that gay marriage damages anyone else.”
