She continues, “That girl was as bright as the stars! She was not only beautiful on the outside, but also within. Sharing the stage with her was a joy I will cherish for the rest of my life! We, the family ask for prayers and respect for our privacy as we grieve an outstanding loss to our family.”

702 is a girl group, with the final and most known line-up consisting of Kameelah Williams, LeMisha Grinstead and Irish Grinstead, until her death.

The group was originally a quartet featuring the Grinstead sisters, which included identical twins Irish and Orish (born June 2, 1980, in Houston, Texas), their older sister LeMisha (born June 10, 1978, in Houston, Texas), and Amelia Childs whom they debuted as featured artists on Subway’s hit single “This Lil’ Game We Play”.

Amelia and Orish were removed from the group due to Mike Bivins not favoring their voices and were briefly replaced by classmates Tiffany Villarreal and Kameelah Williams (born March 8, 1978, in Las Vegas, Nevada). Six months before their debut single was released Tiffany would depart the group. Continuing as a trio, they released their debut single “Steelo” with great success.
