Brooklyn Youth Chorus Academy’s fly new uniforms are something to sing about.

The Grammy Award-winning songbirds can croon all the way to the fashion runway — or, at the very least, hit the haute note on the David Letterman Show — thanks to big-hearted ex-Midwood design diva Isaac Mizrahi, who created the flossy blue threads because they asked him to.

“They had me at ‘Brooklyn,’ ” trilled Mizrahi, who once attended the Yeshivah of Flatbush and turned to the rag trade after his father gave him a sewing machine at the age of 10.

The mop-topped designer and television presenter gladly picked up his scissors for free after being approached by chorus members last year to give them a swanky new wardrobe.

The kids were sewn away by the black form-fitting pants, complemented by a deep blue waistcoat and jacket with a long-sleeved black T-shirt underneath, debuting their dazzling duds — along with a stylish performance — on Letterman.

Mizrahi even went to the trouble of creating a special hue of royal blue for the garments, said troupe Executive Director Valerie Lewis.

“It just makes you want to smile,” she says, adding that her young charges were proud to don uniforms designed by a renowned Brooklyn-born dedsigner.

The chorus, whose execs paid to have the uniforms made, has come a long way from its humble roots back in 1992: Then, just a few dozen kids exercised their vocal chords in a donated space in Downtown.

Today, they are wooed by Carnegie and Radio City Music halls, among other world-famous venues.

Brooklyn Youth Chorus Academy will perform its Soundscapes Concert Series at Our Lady of Lebanon Church [133 Remsen St. between Montague and Court streets in Brooklyn Heights, (718) 243-9447], May 20-21 at 7:30 pm.
