Pink power ranger Amy Jo Johnson puts on original TV costume to busk in Toronto
Just woke and realized this wasn't a strange dream I had. Thank you Mark Levy for the photo! And @xkisskisskillx for the suit! Omg! So much stinking fun! All for the love of The Space Between!

Actress Amy Jo Johnson has arguably had the most successful post-90's career out of all five original Mighty Morphin Power Rangersstars.

In the nearly 20 years since she retired her iconic pink ranger suit, Johnson has landed roles in dozens of TV shows and films including FelicityE.R., Spin City and the Toronto-based cop drama Flashpoint.

She's also a singer, songwriter and musician with three studio albums under her belt — a background that likely came in handy this weekend while she sang in Toronto's Yonge-Dundas square as none other than the pink ranger (/ Kimberly Ann Hart.)

The mastermind behind the stunt was none other than original blue ranger David Yost, who challenged Johnson to play guitar publicly if she hit the fundraising goal on an Indiegogo campaign for her debut film The Space Between (which will be both written and directed by Johnson.)

Knowing that she was about to hit her $75,000 fundraising goal last week, Yost sent Johnson a message of support in the form of a video she posted to Instagram.

While Johnson, 42, did express on Instagram that she was nervous to complete the challenge, she announced that she would be performing at the Toronto intersection Friday afternoon to celebrate the success of her Indiegogo campaign (which has since gone on to raise more than $100,000.)

She got psyched up for the event that day by sharing a few photos and videos in which she wears the pink ranger costume at home.

And then it was go time.

@_amyjojohnson some shots you took with our teammates and others taken them. #BackInPink from us to you!

"Thank you to everyone who came out!! Omg! You made it so fun!!" said Johnson on Twitter following the performance as the internet swooned over the news that she had performed in her old costume.

She may no longer be a teenager with attitude, but as reaction to her appearance shows, she'll always be the pink ranger in our hearts.
