Imelda Papin and Janet Basco went on to big careers as well after they had other hit songs.
Heber Bartolome's "Tayo'y Mga Pinoy" became a protest anthem, and Ryan Cayabyab's "Kay Ganda ng Ating Musika" became the anthem of sorts of Original Pilipino Music.
This period in time was right at the beginning of the Original Pilipino Music (OPM) boom, and after this first festival, the singing careers of Hajji Alejandro, Celeste Legaspi, Maricris Bermont, and Anthony Castelo went to full gear.
Ryan Cayabyab is now a well-respected composer and musician; so with Joel Navarro.
Emil Mijares was the musical director for this festival.
