Singer

Celestina Warbeck (b. 1917) was a popular singer known as "The Singing Sorceress". She is often featured on the Wizarding Wireless Network, at the show Witching Hour.[3]

BiographyEdit

Early lifeEdit

Little is known about Warbeck's early life. She probably completed her magical studies before becoming a singer.

Career as a singerEdit

After becoming a singer, Warbeck became well known in wizarding Great Britain, getting involved in important causes frequently. She protested against the Ministry of Magic's decision to restrict Hallowe'en celebrations,[4] and recorded a version of the Puddlemere United Quidditch team's anthem, Beat Back Those Bludgers, Boys, and Chuck That Quaffle Here, to raise funds for St Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries.[5] She also featured heavily on shows at the Wizarding Wireless Network, one being the Witching Hour, hosted by Glenda Chittock.[3]

A Celestina Warbeck performance at Diagon Alley.

In 2003 she allowed a Muggle dog-walker who accidentally took a Portkey to one of her concerts to join her on the stage for a duet of A Cauldron Full of Hot, Strong Love; while the Memory Charm cast on him by a harassed Ministry official appeared at first to have erased his memory of the incident, he since has written a popular song that greatly resembles Warbeck's hit, something she was not amused about.[6]

PopularityEdit

Celestina is Molly Weasley's favourite singer. During Christmas, the Weasley family and their guests listened to a Christmas broadcast at the WWN, in which the musician sang tunes such as A Cauldron Full of Hot, Strong Love and You Charmed the Heart Right Out of Me.[7] Despite Mrs. Weasley's enthusiasm, none of the other people at The Burrow seemed to pay much attention to the songs, except for Fleur Delacour, who despised them, as she was mimicking the lyrics and saying how horrible it was.[7]

Known songsEdit

EtymologyEdit

Celestina possibly comes from the word celestial, meaning "pertaining to the sky or visible heaven." Warbeck may come from warbler, which is a singing bird.
