Review: Alicia Keys, Miguel stir up a soulful show at the Tampa Bay Times Forum in Tampa



For more than a decade, Alicia Keys has been one of the most critically adored and commercially successful pop and R&B singers in America. So it's a little confounding that she drew only 7,959 fans to the Tampa Bay Times Forum on Sunday night.

But Keys' voice today remains a spine-tingling siren on that singular opening note of Fallin', her Grammy-winning breakthrough hit. And every time she sat and sang in the spotlight -- as on the vulnerable Diary or gospel-confessional love song Not Even The King -- it was simply stirring.

And then there was opening act Miguel, a recent Grammy winner in his own right, who spun, stripped, skanked and sexed his way through tracks from 2012's boudoir-knocking Kaleidoscope Dream for a far-too-scant 45 minutes.
