(Newser) – Susan Boyle has checked out of a mental health hospital where she was treated for nervous exhaustion and is "much happier," her brother tells the Telegraph. "She seems a lot more like herself. Things are becoming clearer for her now," he said. "She's now beginning to believe that, 'Yes, indeed, I will be a singer.'" Boyle, 48, has moved to a flat in central London.

The Scottish church singer with the breathtaking voice was rushed to the hospital last Sunday after apparently suffering a breakdown when she came in second in the Britain's Got Talent finals. Despite her loss, she could make millions from a singing career. Bookies  are already predicting a hit in America, where the middle-aged songbird has made millions of fans.
