In 1986, Marwan enrolled in the University of Saint Espirit Kasslik in Lebanon. He studied piano and harmony there and during his university years, and he won a prize in a music composition contest. The award was presented to the singer by former Lebanese President Amin Joumayel in the following year. In 1988, Marwan produced his very first album Asak Habibi depending solely on himself in writing the lyrics and composing the songs, and of course producing it. The album was not that big of a hit unfortunately.
Marwan started a new phase in his life in 1989, but not as a singer. He performed in various variety shows, such as Aghani Aghani and Studio Al-Fan, on the keyboard. He continued as a keyboard player till 1996 and played with many famous bands; like Sabah’s band. But during that period, Marwan was able to come up with a single, Fik Yamma Balak. It was released in 1994 and established he as a talented singer. He then went on to lead Wael Kfoury’s band as well as other famous Lebanese singers as before. This gave Khoury the chance to see the world and go on tour as a conductor. In 1997 he wrote, composed and performed his second single Lasbor Ala Wela. It was not until 1999 however that Marwan finally became known in the music industry as a writer/composer. He came up with two hit songs for Nawal Al Zoghbi Tia and Dalouna. Then the year 2001 came along and with it Marwan launched his first official album Khayal El-Omr. The very next year, Khoury shot his first video clip Ya Shog with director Bassem Christo. In 2003, the singer got his first recognition as a talented composer and was awarded Murex D’Or as the best composer.
In 2004, Marwan reached his milestone. He landed a five-year contract with a major production company, Rotana. He then released his second solo album Kel El Asayed in May of that year. The album and the title song were a big hit and their popularity spread fast. It was this album that actually made Marwan famous in the Arab world and in Egypt. To further the success he had achieved, Marwan released a video for the title song of his album the following month. The video was directed by his brother, Claude Khoury. Marwan released another hit album in 2005, Asr El Shawq. His latest album, Ana wl Leil , was released in 2008.
