The writer profiles singing sorceress Celestina Warbeck, from the sixth book...
J.K. sure is generous to her fans. Another story from the wizarding world has emerged on Pottermore.com - its subject, the witchy warbler Celestina Warbeck. Whilst Celestina doesn’t make a direct appearance in the Harry Potter books, you might remember her as Molly Weasley’s favourite singer and her recordings are staples of the Weasleys’ Christmas festivities.
In this new release, we find out that Celestina attended Hogwarts and was a Gryffindor before launching her hugely successful singing career, though her ‘ability to drown out a chorus of banshees’ was infamous from a young age. Rowling also provides the low-down on the character’s personal life, including her series of scandalous romances and her penchant for ‘travelling in fabulous style’. You can read the whole thing over on Pottermore, plus listen to Warbeck’s hit single ‘A Cauldron Full of Hot, Strong Love’!
