Selena Gomez was recently snapped with Sound of Freedom producer Eduardo Verastegui. The singer made her way into the spotlight as the image of hers with the producer and actor went viral on social media. Sound of Freedom made its way into the theatres on July 4, 2023, and is based on the life of Tim Ballard, an anti-human trafficking activist.

Over the years, Selena has revealed her involvement with A21, which is an Australian NGO that works for human trafficking. Given that Sound of Freedom also revolves around the same issues, Selena's picture with the producer is not surprising, as she was spotted during a screening of the film.

The film stars Jim Caviezel, Mira Sorvino, and Bill Camp, with a guest appearance from producer Eduardo himself.

Ever since Selena's picture with Eduardo Verastegui went viral, many netizens have been seeking out more details about the producer.


Eduardo Verastegui, the producer of Sound of Freedom, also started an NGO

Born in 1974, José Eduardo Verástegui Córdoba is not just a producer, as he entered the film industry in 2004, following which he acted in a number of films. Besides that, he was also a key member of Kairo, a music band that he started during his early days.

His role in the short film, The Butterfly Circus, earned him massive acclaim, as it not only won several awards but also garnered more than 30 million views on YouTube. He was also seen in For Greater Glory with Eva Longoria and Peter O’Toole.

Having acted in a dozen films, Verastegui started his own production company, Metanoia Films.
