Singer

Celestina Warbeck (b. 1917) was a popular singer known as the "The Singing Sorceress". She is often featured on the Wizarding Wireless Network, at the show Witching Hour.[2]

Biography

Early life

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

Career as a singer

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 Halloween celebrations,[3] 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.[4] She also featured heavily on shows at the Wizarding Wireless Network, one being the Witching Hour, hosted by Glenda Chittock.[2]

Popularity

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.[5] 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 mimicing the lyrics and saying how horrible it was.[5]

Known songs

Etymology

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.
