Grammy award-winning singer Lauren Daigle said it’s “insane” that the media and some Democrats are criticizing the anti-child trafficking film The Sound of Freedom.
After screening the film, Daigle went on Instagram Live to address the naysayers.
“One thing I found very interesting is that people are having to defend this movie. This is insane to me that this would even be something that needs to be defended,” Daigle shared on camera.
“Children being harmed should never be something we question whether we need to defend or not! I saw a lot of pretty inflammatory news articles and headlines and people trying to shut this film down,’ she said.
As The Daily Fetched reported, the Sound of Freedom has now brought in $150 million at the box office as the film’s popularity continues to soar. The film, starring Jim Caviezel, is also now playing in 3,411 theaters across America.
Meanwhile, attacks from the mainstream media have only catalyzed to propel the movie to new heights.
The Grammy award-winning singer said she has no connection with people in the Sound of Freedom film, but felt guided to spread the film’s message to help eradicate child trafficking.
“I left like, ‘Holy cow, something needs to happen.’ And it really tied into my story.”
Daigle also revealed she used to raise money for an anti-trafficking organization while she was a student at Louisiana State University
“And it was my friends and I, we would host these 5K races to raise money for this organization called A21 that went in and helped children get out of the sex industry.”
“It’s wild that this could remotely be a topic that people could argue, debate, question, children being put in harm’s way by the people, adults that are supposed to be protecting them in life. This should never be up for question,” Daigle said. “This should never be up for debate!”
“Children who are entrusted into the hands of adults, who are brought into this world by adults, these kids look up to adults to say, ‘You’re my protector,'” she said.
“And then the adults use that power and that privilege to completely obliterate the lives of others based upon greed.”
“People don’t realize how much is tucked away in the Bible. They think that the things that we’re going through in the world today, the situations that are at hand, the chaos and the crazy, that’s at hand today, they think it never existed, this is too far gone, too far from the Bible, the Bible’s not relatable,” Daigle explained.
“God doesn’t take this stuff lightly,” she exclaimed.
“So for every person who is out there that thinks that this movie is just stupid people trying to praise QAnon, or whatever the stupid conspiracy is, you got something else coming for you because this is not something that God takes lightly.”
“It is my hope and my prayer that we see something change in this world in regards to these children. And I, 1,000%, believe that the only way that anything will ever happen is — One: If we unite, Two: If we take action.”
