Magical British author J.K. Rowling’s pen has been extremely busy. Not only is she currently working on the anticipated, “Fantastic Beasts” trilogy, but last June she released a story about an imagined Harry Potter at 34 years old with his ever-so-slightly graying hair. This time, Rowling shared a new short story and song on the “Today” show, based on a stylish singer named, Celestina Warbeck. “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,” she explained.

Per the story, Warbeck comes from humble half-muggle origins but became ultra famous through musical career. Although she never really appears in any of the Harry Potter books, we are reminded that she is Ron Weasley’s mom, Molly’s favorite singer. Also known as the "Singing Sorceress," her hit list includes "A Cauldron Full of Hot, Strong Love," "You Charmed the Heart Right Out of Me" and “You Stole My Cauldron but You Can’t Have My Heart.” You can enjoy this last one on pottermore.com if you have a membership and you’ve unlocked it by playing in the Pottermore universe.

The writer revealed part of the story and a wonderfully entertaining bio of the character on the “Today” show on Monday. Among other details about the singer, she said her hobbies include, “traveling in fabulous style, breeding rough-coated Crups, relaxing in any of her eight homes.” And mentions Celestina has been married three times and has one son. As it was to be expected, J.K. Rowling worked her magic on us once again, and we can’t wait to see more from the famous songstress!
