Irish’s passing was announced by her sister and fellow 702 group member, LeMisha Grinstead, in an Instagram post dated September 16:
“It is with great sadness that I have to let you know that my beautiful sister and friend has passed away this evening,”
“She has had a long battle and she is finally at peace. 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.”
Born in Long Beach, California, Irish began singing in church choirs as a child. In 1998, she joined 702, along with Kameelah Williams and LeMisha Grinstead. The group released their debut album, No Doubt, the following year. The album was a commercial success, spawning the hit singles “Stepmom” and “Get It Together.”
702 went on to release five more albums, including the Grammy-nominated album Star (2002). The group also had several other hit singles, including “Where My Girls At,” “Star,” and “I Still Love You.”
Grinstead left 702 in 2003 to pursue a solo career. She released her debut solo album, The Life, in 2003. The album was not as commercially successful as 702’s albums, but it received positive reviews from critics.
Grinstead also appeared in several films and television shows, including The Parkers, House of Payne, and The Young and the Restless. She also had a recurring role on the soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful.
