Named after the area code of their hometown of Las Vegas, Nevada,
Whenever a big boxing match was in town, the Grinstead sisters would hang out in the lobby of Caesars Palace and show off their vocal skills for all who would listen in the hopes that someone in the music industry would pass by.
Originally a quartet, the group eventually became a trio, which includes twin sisters Irish (born June 2, 1980), and Orish Grinstead (born June 2, 1980, died April 20, 2008), their sister LeMisha 'Misha' Grinstead (born June 10, 1978) and lead singer Kameelah 'Meelah' Williams (born March 8, 1978) who left the group in 2001 to start her own solo career but returned in 2003.
Actor/comedian Sinbad, happened to walk by. Though not a music producer, he believed that the Grinsteads were talented and visited their home in order to convince their parents to send the trio to Atlanta for a convention and music competition.
Though the girls missed the deadline for entry, Sinbad used his name to get them in.
"Sweeta than Suga," as they were then called (Sinbad suggested the name).
