As one of the many amazing new experiences at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley, the musical performances by Celestina Warbeck and the Banshees have become a favorite of fans who have visited the new land, and something only seen and heard here at Universal Orlando Resort.
Taken straight from the Harry Potter book series, this ever-popular wizarding world singing sensation—and Molly Weasley’s personal favorite—sings never-before-heard songs including, “A Cauldron Full of Hot, Strong Love,” “You Stole My Cauldron But You Can’t Have My Heart” and “You Charmed the Heart Right Out of Me,” titles all created by J.K. Rowling. Leading her backing singers, the Banshees, Celestina’s swinging live show takes over The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley’s Carkitt Market area multiple times each day.
In celebration of her birthday today, a fact only revealed for the first time today by Pottermore, you can now learn more about Celestina – from her early life to her career highlights and the ups and downs of her personal life through new writing by J.K. Rowling only on pottermore.com, the online home for the world of Harry Potter. In addition, by unlocking this special information, you can hear a recording of one of Celestina’s songs in its entirety, as it is performed in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley.
Wondering what else you can learn from Pottermore? Well, here is a sneak peek for you:
“Although we never lay eyes on Celestina during the whole seven volumes of the Potter books, I always imagined her to resemble Shirley Bassey in both looks and style. I stole her first name from a friend with whom I worked, years ago, at Amnesty International’s Headquarters in London; ‘Celestina’ was simply begging to be scooped up and attached to a glamorous witch.”
