Singer and song-writer Jewel showed her support for the new film “Sound of Freedom,” sharing a video on TikTok and Twitter encouraging everyone to get out and see the movie.
Responding to a month-old tweet from Twitter owner Elon Musk – who had suggested that Angel Studios make the film available to stream on Twitter — the “Foolish Games” singer shared a video of herself talking about the importance of the movie’s message.
“It saddens me that some media is trying to politicize this movie,” she captioned the video. “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.”

“You guys, I just saw the ‘Sound of Freedom,’” she said. “You have to see it. I’m so verklempt.”
“Some friends of mine made this movie,” the singer continued. “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 said, referencing the inspiration for the movie — former federal agent Tim Ballard. “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.”
“Go see this and have your heart filled,” Jewel concluded. “Love you guys, take care of your babies!”
Jewel joins a number of others who have worked to promote the film — including actor Mel Gibson and UFC President Dana White, the latter of whom even offered to pay for tickets for any of his employees who wanted to see the film.
Critics – including a number of media outlets – have attempted to tie the film to QAnon conspiracy theories.
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:
