It Happened A Few Weeks Ago But Its Just Now Getting Any Attention

Orish Grinstead, one of the founding members of the R&B group 702, died this week of kidney failure, BET reported.

Grinstead, 27, suffered from cancer and other undisclosed ailments and was expected not to recover, the website reported.

She died on April 20.

Grinstead formed the group with her twin sister, Irish, their older sister, Lameisha, and friend Kameelah Williams during the mid-1990s. She left the group to pursue a solo career, while the remaining members found success with such hits as "Steelo," "Get It Together," and "We're My Girls At."

The group has sold more than 500,000 music units worldwide.

Williams left the group twice to pursue a solo career, with Grinstead rejoining the group in her place. She also filled in when members were on temporary leaves, include her older sister when Lameisha was pregnant with her son in 1999.

The group was discovered by Sinbad, who used his influence to get the group into a popular talent show in Atlanta. It was at the talent show that the group met singer Michael Bivens, member of New Edition and Bell Biv Devoe and manager of Boyz II Men, who became their manager and suggested their name as a homage to the area code for their hometown of Las Vegas.

Dayum yo the Grinstead family is cursed... Lameisha had a brea$t removed in 2004 due to cancer, they lost their home in Las Vegas, and now this... dayum Orish and Irish were the finest of the sisters too...I didn't know she lived in NJ though... R.I.P.

Damn! I loved their music back in the day...I feel terrible that I'm just now hearing about this.

My heart goes out to their family...expected or not, the death of a loved one is nearly unbearable in every situation.

That was probably one of their first videos "Steelo", or "All I Want" which was the only two Videos besides "Pooty Tangin'" that had male dancers, Orish wasn't in the group at the time she was off trying to do her own project when 702's debut album "No Doubt" dropped, but she did do backround on one song "Not Gonna" with the other former member (I believe), she jumped back in during touring of their second album when Meisha took time off to have her son. And did some work on their last album "Star" after the album flopped the group disbanded untill june of 2007 Orish, Irish, And Lameisha were suposed to be working on another reformed 702 album in Janurary of this year... now what will come of that project is unknown... maybe Kameelah will rejoin when everything settles down.

their first video with Orish (lead, blue hat) and the other member besides Meisha, Amelia and Irish:

Okay, lemme get this straight. She founded the group but, since the group started officially putting out material, she was only doing work behind the scenes... right? So, she really wasn't a visible member in the group? She was the identical twin sister of Irish? However, for anyone that has a 702 album, it doesn't help to look at the pics in the album because she is not in any of them... correct? It's always Irish not Orish in the pics, yeah?


R.I.P. to her.


I wish all these talented female R&B groups would stop breaking up.

If I'm right...


There are 4 members of 702. Orish is the one we never see... but, Orish is identical to Irish and thus the confusion.
