About Marwan Khoury
Marwan Khoury (Arabic: مروان خوري‎) is a Lebanese singer, writer, composer and music arranger. His compositions are performed by some of the most famous artists in the Arab World and adapted by many other countries including Turkey. He composed hits for leading artists such as Majida El Roumi, Saber Rabai, Nawal Al Zoghbi, Assala Nasri, Najwa Karam, Fadl Shaker, Elissa, Carole Samaha, Bassima, and Myriam Fares.In 1986, Khoury enrolled at the Université Saint-Esprit de Kaslik (USEK) in Lebanon where he studied piano, Musicology and Music History. During his university years, he won a prize in a music composition contest. The award was presented to the singer by former Lebanese President Amin Gemayel. In 1988, Khoury produced his first album Kasak Habibi (كاسكحبيبي) depending solely on himself in writing the lyrics, composing the songs, and producing. Khoury started a new phase in his life in 1989, not as a singer but as a keyboard player and a band conductor. He performed in various TV shows. He continued as a keyboard player until 1996 and played with many famous Lebanese artists. But during that period, Khoury wrote and sang the single, "Fik Yamma Balak" (فيك ياما بالك). It was released in 1994 and established him as a singer. In 1997 he wrote, composed and performed his second single "Lasbor Ala Welah" (لأصبر على ويله). It was not until 1999 that Khoury finally became known in the music industry as a writer/composer. He wrote and composed two hit songs for Nawal Al Zoghbi; "Tia" (تيا) and "Dalouna" (الدّلعونه) Then the year 2001 came along and with it Khoury launched his first official album Khayal El-Omer (خيَّال العمر). The very next year, Khoury shot his first video clip "Ya Shog" (يا شوق). Khoury has twice been awarded the Murex d'or. He first won in 2003 and then in 2004 he was awarded another Murex d'or for Best Multi-Talented Artist (singer, composer, music video, song and album). Kil Al Asayed (كل القصايد) was one of the best selling albums of 2004. In 2005, Khoury landed a five-year contract with the major production company Rotana Records. He also released his first major album Kil Al Asayed in May 2005. The album and the title song were successful and their popularity spread fast. It was this album that made Khoury famous in the Arab World. In 2006 Khoury released an additional album Asr El Sho (قصر الشوق). Khoury's latest album will contain 10 tracks and be released sometime in 2010. Marwan Khoury is considered one of the most respected Lebanese artists. He has performed live at the Cairo Opera House and the Carthage Film Festival of Tunisia.
