From Wikipedia:
Jan Terri (born June 17, 1959) is a musician from Chicago who gained notoriety for her VHS music videos. She recorded two albums, High Risk[1] and Baby Blues[2] in the early 90s, along with VHS cassettes including her music videos, which became popular on YouTube. Terri graduated from Columbia College Chicago in 1983 with a degree in broadcast communications and arts and entertainment management. While at Columbia, she interned at a recording studio in Hillside run by a country bar band called the Windy City Cowboys. Terri became their backup singer. She also studied voice with Anne Perillo.

By 1992, Terri was working as a limo driver when she planned to return to making music. Prior to this, Terri worked as a cashier at a Zayre department store where she met bagger Jeff Lemeshewsky, her future producer and boyfriend. The relationship reportedly began after Jan watched Jeff play tennis. Apparently her heart grew fonder the more terribly he played. Despite its magical beginnings, the relationship would quickly sour after a dispute over another romantic tryst. Jeff cried for days on end and ultimately mustered the courage to leave Jan, which was the inspiration for her all-time classic, "Losing You". The specific line "You're the only thing that matters" has been attributed to them getting back together and eventually getting married, which they remain today, still working on their much anticipated duet album, "Dirtbike Love". Jan has recorded a wide collection of songs, and eventually had several music videos filmed to help promote them. Still working as a limousine driver, Terri would give copies of the videos to her clients in an attempt to generate interest in work. These became cult favorites in advertising and marketing circles.[citation needed]
In the late 1990s, Terri's a copy of a one of her videos was seen by rock musician Marilyn Manson. He had Terri perform her number one hit at one of his parties as a sort of sideshow to his 'freak' tour theme, and allowed her to open for one of his concerts. Some footage of her can be viewed in Manson's God is in the TV collection. Terri's second album, High Risk, was released around this time, and she enjoyed a cult following in Chicago for a few more years.
