Life 96.5 (Sioux Falls, SD) started an evening of worship and sing-a-longs with ping pong and fellowship with Chris Tomlin during his tour stop in Sioux Falls Friday October 11.
Tomlin enjoyed some good ol’ table tennis with a few concert goers to kick off the concert night.
Tomlin battled in his first match with Life 96.5 listener Michele Hemp. Hemp won the chance from Life 96.5 to play ping-pong against Tomlin. After Hemp quickly disposed Tomlin in straight-sets, Tomlin moved on to the next round against Ceci Heiberger, Hemp’s concert guest for the night. Heiberger forced Tomlin on his heels most of the night. Heiberger said in a post-match presser, she understood Tomlin’s strength was his height. “But I’m an inch shorter than Chris and made him point at me, that was a huge early match advantage,” Heiberger said with a smile.
Along with the ping-pong competition, Hemp and Heiberger received tickets to the concert that evening at the Denny Sanford Premier Center.
