Irish Grinstead of ’90s R&B’ Girl Group 702, Dead at 43

Irish Grinstead, a founding member of ’90s girl group 702, has died according to an Instagram post her sister LeMisha Grinstead made on Sept 16.

Irish Grinstead, whose twin sister Orish passed away from kidney failure in 2008, was described by her sister in her Instagram post, “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.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, although Irish’s cause of death was not given, she stepped away from the group in December 2022 in order to focus on her health issues.
