The Harry Potter book series may have ended, but author J.K. Rowling is continually releasing new tidbits and stories on Pottermore.com — which is an awesome site, so go sign up if you aren’t already. The sorting and the wand selection alone are amazing.
This week Rowling released a new story about the “singing sorceress,” Celestina Warbeck — aka Molly Weasley’s favorite singer in “Harry Potter” — which also featured the audio of the title track off her new album, “You Stole My Cauldron But You Can’t Have My Heart.” Above, “Today” debuted footage of the song, which is performed daily at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in the Universal Orlando Resort.
Below is an excerpt from the story. You’ll have to sign up for Pottermore to read the whole thing.
“Celestina’s extraordinary voice was apparent from an early age. Disappointed to learn that there was so such thing as a wizarding stage school, Mrs. Warbeck reluctantly consented to her daughter’s enrollment at Hogwarts, but subsequently bombarded the school with letters urging the creation of a choir, theatre club and dancing class to showcase her daughter’s talents.”
