According to the Pottermore Insider, the singing sensation of the wizarding world Celestina Warbeck is celebrating her birthday today. One of J.K. Rowling’s favorite “off-stage” characters that she created for her Harry Potter series of books was noted in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, Chapter 16 ‘A Very Frosty Christmas’:
“They were all supposed to be listening to a Christmas broadcast by Mrs Weasley’s favourite singer, Celestina Warbeck, whose voice was warbling out of the large wooden wireless. Fleur, who seemed to find Celestina very dull, was talking so loudly in the corner that a scowling Mrs Weasley kept pointing her wand at the volume control, so that Celestina grew louder and louder. [...]
‘Oh, come and stir my cauldron,
And if you do it right
I’ll boil you up some hot, strong love
To keep you warm tonight.’
‘We danced to this when we were eighteen!’ said Mrs Weasley, wiping her eyes on her knitting. ‘Do you remember, Arthur?’
‘Mphf?’ said Mr Weasley, whose head had been nodding over the satsuma he was peeling. ‘Oh yes … marvelous tune …’ “
But it was today on Pottermore.com which revealed more information about one of Molly Weasley’s favorite singers. Players of the virtual game site can ‘unlock” Rowling’s notes on Celestina Warbeck in the “Floo Powder” Moment of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. The notes reveal the singer’s background, career highlights, and her personal life. An audio track of Ms. Warbeck’s single “You Stole My Cauldron But You Can’t Have My Heart” is included with the notes.
As a registered player of Pottermore.com, it took me a few minutes to unlock the information. I must say it was quite juicy enough for me to take an Insider Oath not to give out any spoilers to ones who cannot or have not unlocked the information for themselves or else a certain larch and phoenix feather wand may lay a temporary curse on my typing fingers. It is true that you may be able to get the “forbidden” details from another source. But I’d hate to see what kind of boils may grow on their fingers in the next few days. *shudder”. But I can tell you that the single will definitely be a hit for Ms. Warbeck. I certainly enjoyed it!
Also, Celestina Warbeck and her Banshees are currently performing at Diagon Alley at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Universal Studios Orlando. Click here for more information.
