J.K. Rowling Is Expanding The 'Harry Potter' Universe Again

Posted at 9:01AM Tuesday 19 Aug 2014

Harry Potter devotees may remember Celestina Warbeck's vocal stylings from Chapter 16 of "Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince."

Mrs. Weasley's favorite singer and one of J.K. Rowling's "favorite 'off-stage' characters in the whole series" now has her own story in a short history by the author on Pottermore. And — bonus — visitors may also listen to her hit "You Stole My Cauldron But You Can't Have My Heart," inspired by real-life Welsh singer Shirley Bassey.
