What Ever Happened To.. 702? @ 4:41 PM
Do you guys remember the R&B group 702? These girls were originally a group of three sisters (twins Orish and Irish and Lemisha Grinstead) and their friend, lead singer Kameelah Williams all hailing from Las Vegas, NV (hence the name, 702- their area code). Collectively, 702 collaborated with the short-lived boy band Subway to release their first single titled This Game We Play.
Shortly after the success of this single, the group evolved as the popularly known trio of Irish, Lemisha, and Kameelah. They graced the billboard charts and radio airwaves with hits like Steelo, Get It Together, and Where My Girls At. This group enjoyed success and platinum-selling records for over ten years. Check out some of my favorite hits by them:
Have you guys heard anything from these lovely ladies lately? I am aware that band member Kameelah has a child with Musiq Soulchild, but that is all I know of the group. What are these ladies up to?
Rest in Peace to Orish, the twin sister to band member Irish and former member of 702.
She passed away on April 23, 2008.
