Still recovering from shoulder and rib injuries, the 43-year old singer posted a video of herself on her own YouTube channel leaving the hospital.

As announced earlier this week, Mariah dislocated her shoulder and cracked a rib while filming the remix music video to 'Beautiful’.

Exiting the hospital in a wheelchair and a sling, the singer said: “Well that was fun. It wasn’t. It was harrowing.”

But she sent a message to her fans, telling them that she would be returning to work immediately.  “Do you know why? Because I am a professional,” she said.

Mariah, married to rapper Nick Cannon, also took to Twitter to speak of her experience, saying “Still in a lot of pain - cracked rib, fractured shoulder, bruises everywhere, but the show must go on.”

The global superstar is due to take the stage today in Central Park, New York, for a Hurricane Sandy benefit.
