Select artists will be coming to the Mwave studio to greet international fans and sign their purchased CDs. Once fans purchase from the Meet & Greet section, they'll be able to write a message to the star, which will be on display while the artist is in the studio. The artists will directly select people who have purchased their CDs and sign them, while fans can watch right on the Meet & Greet page. (http://mwave.interest.me/meetgreet/view/10)
