Gladys Knight

Takes 'First Family' Kids

To Singing School

The only thing better than starring on a TV show with music legend Gladys Knight ... is getting singing lessons from her.

Knight -- who co-stars on "The First Family" as the President's mom -- was filming a scene with her TV "grandchildren", which required them to sing ... on key. But the youngins couldn't hit the notes.

In the video ... Knight gave her young pips -- Khylin Rhambo, Yara Shahidi, Sayeed Shahidi, and Layla Crawford -- a crash course in singing, with a little tune called "This Little Light Of Mine."

It totally paid off (duh it's Gladys) ... because the kids nailed it the very next try.

I sure hope someone is watching out for the welfare of those children so Miss Gladys doesn't haul off and backhand them.

She's always been a class act. Too bad she was one of the last.
