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.

702 was originally the 3 Grinstead sisters Orish, Lameisha & Irish and cousin Amelia (Chick with the big bushy eyebrows in the video I posted).

Before they started recording the first album, Orish and Amelia left the group. Lameisha and Irish decieded to bring in Kameelah a close friend, the newly christened 702 was presented to Michael Bivens who re-signed them to his Biv10 imprint at the time.

They recorded their debut album "No Doubt" Orish and Amelia joined the trio on the Song "Not Gonna".

shortly before their second album "702" the girls record deal got transfered from the failing Biv10 imprint to Motown records, Kameelah's mother died in a car accident leaving her unfoucused on the project, Lameisha performed in one video with Irish and Kameelah(Where My Girls At) before she left to have her son a few months later, Orish joined the group during the rest of the touring schedule and the other two single videos off of the second album.


During the 2000-2002 Hiatus Kameelah left the group to start her solo carrer she had been replaced with a new girl Cree Lamore on the single for the Pooty Tang Soundtrack "Pooty Tangin'". The chemestry between the new girl and Irish and Lemeisha didn't work out so Orish was brought back into the group.

With Kameelah's Solo carrer, She briefly became the new protégé of Faith Evans and signed a deal to be managed by Faith and her husband, Todd Russaw, under their Pedigree MGI Management. Kameelah sang backup and wrote 3 songs for Faith Evans' album, "Faithfully". She also sang backup for Missy Elliott on her "Miss E...So Addictive" album with the third single "Take Away". when her solo venture didn't pan out, she rejoined the group and they begun work on the 2003 album "Star". Amelia and Orish did some backrounds on the last album.

After "Star" did lackluster in sales the group disbanded and Lameisha discovered she had brea$t cancer which resulted in one of her brea$t being removed because of the wide spread of the cancer in the brea$t tissue.

Kameelah went on to try another shot at a solo carrer.

In 2005 their home in Las Vegas burned to the ground, the cause was an electrical fire, lucky none of the family was in the home when it happened as it was being renovated.

In 2007 Irish, Lameisha and Orish reformed 702 and was working on a new album untill Orish became to sick to perform and was eventually hospitalized. As of now the project is in limbo.

Just to clear somethings up about the confusion between Irish and Orish.

Irish was the girl in the IMX(Imature) video in 2000 for a single they released and she also dated Ray J and has done some acting appearing in the movie The Brewster Project in early 2004.

Orish besides helping out with the group stayed out of the public spotlight altogether (This is why there's really no pics of Orish).
