During Katherine's first press conference as first lady on a new government music program for inner-city children, President Johnson stretches the truth about their children's musical abilities, and announces that they will be performing a recital. T... (more)his leads to Katherine recruiting her mother (and childhood music teacher) Eddy (Marla Gibbs) to help them, only to turn practice into a boot camp experience. When her method fails and the kids start playing badly at the recital, Carolyn (Gladys Knight) saves her son and daughter-in-law from admitting the truth by having the children sing a rousing rendition of This Little Light of Mine with her. Meanwhile, Alvin and Pauletta concoct a scheme to capitalize on family canine Maxine's popularity, by finding a male dog to breed with her.
