Johnson's character in Felicity was originally described as a dancer, but with Johnson's input, the producers rewrote the character as a singer and guitarist.As a result, Johnson was able to perform her own song, "Puddle of Grace", on the show.Among other notable recognitions, Johnson received a nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Continuing Leading Dramatic Role at the 24th Annual Gemini Awards in 2009.
She has performed in the Los Angeles area with the Amy Jo Johnson Band.

Amy Jo Johnson (born October 6, 1970) is an American-Canadian actress, filmmaker, singer-songwriter, and director. She attended the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute and the American Musical and Dramatic Academy.
Johnson began her acting career in her early twenties, in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, and, after she left the series, went on to star in Felicity, The Division, and Flashpoint while pursuing a career as a musician and a filmmaker. She later moved to Los Angeles to audition for her first part.
This song was included in the album Felicity Soundtrack (1999) successfully released by Hollywood Records.
As a result of the reception of the song, another Johnson song, "Clear Blue Day", was also featured on the show.
Johnson ultimately made the decision to leave the show in 1995, passing the role of the Pink Ranger to Australian actress Catherine Sutherland.
In an appearance on I Love the '90s, Johnson jokingly stated that having been the Pink Power Ranger was something she would "never live down." In later years, Johnson stated that becoming famous from the show was at times overwhelming and had given her nightmares, but that overall, she learned many things and is grateful to the show and her fans.
In 1998, Johnson was invited to play Julie Emrick in The WB series Felicity.
