Great news, Harry Potter fans!
J.K. Rowling took to her website Pottermore.com yesterday to unveil an exiting new character, ‘Singing Sorceress’ Celestina Warbeck, whom you may remember as Ron Weasley’s mom’s favorite musical artist!
J.K. Rowling is revealing never-before-heard details about the elusive songstress Celestina Warbeck, who has actually been mentioned in three Harry Potter books in the past, but never made an appearance in person. Celestina, who is half-muggle, half-wizard and reportedly looks like “Diamonds Are Forever” singer Shirley Bassey, 77, comes complete with a dramatic life story AND a new hit song.
J.K.’s new excerpt describes Celestina as an “international singing sensation” with a dysfunctional personal life, and reveals her career highlights and even her early childhood. In addition to the story, which made its debut on Pottermore.com earlier today, J.K also released a song — the first ever to be posted on the website.
J.K revealed that she got her inspiration for Celestina Warbeck’s name from a girl she used to work with at Amnesty International’s Headquarters in London. “‘Celestina’ was simply begging to be scooped up and attached to a glamorous witch,” she said.
We can’t wait. There is a lot to expect from this new series.
