'Sound Of Freedom' Gets A Surprising Defender
The importance of helping fight human trafficking, an issue that affects millions of vulnerable children worldwide, was seen recently when singer and songwriter Jewel encouraged everyone to watch the new movie Sound of Freedom.
The independent film follows the true story of former federal agent Tim Ballard, who has dedicated his career to rescuing children from slavery. Jewel was moved by the story and took to Twitter and TikTok to show her support for the film.
“It saddens me that some media is trying to politicize this movie," Jewel wrote on the social media platforms. "This is not left or right. It’s about millions of kids being trafficked, and no matter what your faith or creed, we need to protect all the vulnerable kids rather than fight over philosophical differences.”
In a video posted on the platforms, Jewel implored everyone to watch the movie.

"You guys, I just saw the ‘Sound of Freedom," the singer said. "You have to see it. I’m so verklempt. Some friends of mine made this movie, and I’ve -- it’s been years of it being in production. It’s the most inspiring film. Did you know that there are millions of children in slavery? This is the fastest-growing criminal enterprise, and the amount of children enslaved right now is greater than all 300 years of the transatlantic slave trade. What the actual eff?
"This is a true story about a man who just doesn’t give up on a child,” she continued. “So touching, you’re going to love it. Please go see it. This is the little Indie movie that could, it’s competing with all of the giant blockbusters and it’s kicking butt and it deserves it.”
Jewel was not the only person to show her support for Sound of Freedom. Actor Mel Gibson also shared his support for the movie and UFC President Dana White even offered to pay tickets for the film for any of his employees.
Unfortunately, some media outlets have attempted to politicize the movie by linking it to QAnon conspiracy theories. However, Jewel believes that it should not be “left or right” and instead be about the human suffering of innocent children around the world.
“Go see this and have your heart filled,” Jewel concluded. “Love you guys, take care of your babies!”
The mainstream media are coordinating with each other to attempt to discredit Sound of Freedom because it exposes real life child trafficking.
These outlets want to hide the truth:
