Orish formed the group, 702, with her twin sister, Irish and older sister, Lameisha in the mid-90's before being discovered by comedian, Sinbad in the lobby of Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada. The group was originally a quartet, but soon became a trio when Orish left the group to pursue a solo career. Shortly after, 702 released their freshmen debut, No Doubt, which produced hits such as “Steelo”, “All I Want”, “Get It Together”. The set sold over 500,000 copies worldwide.
